We have been working towards becoming carbon neutral over the last 6 years by planting 100’s of native trees on land we have purchased in the heart of Manapouri. This land has been set aside as a reserve. A percentage of our profits goes into a research fund which we established 12 years ago. Over $250,000.00 of financial and logistical support has been made available to scientists and students who carry out research in Fiordland and the subantarctic.
